Empaths: This is Resonance Training

Uncategorized

*(Excerpt from the “How to Get Out of the Matrix” online class)

 

3rd Law Of Gold:

Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling.”

Remember, when we refer to “gold” in this class, we’re referring to our own treasure – the treasure within our hearts. This is our “wellspring of life” and it is crucial to guard, watch over, and protect.

We do this through discernment. Discernment is KEY. And discernment is quite different than judgment. Judgment withholds love based on what we believe is “bad” or “good.” Discernment remembers that love is the key to restoration, and rather than withholding it, love sets boundaries to protect the heart from being drained of life, and its treasure destroyed.

Our treasure multiplies as our love multiplies (especially our love for ourselves). If we don’t love ourselves, we have no motivation to protect ourselves – we willingly stay in slavery because we don’t believe we’re worth saving.

Discernment helps us determine how to best spend the treasure in our hearts, in ways that give us the better returns on our investment. Remember, our inner treasure is self-sustaining. If we learn how to use this treasure to guide us throughout life, it is impossible to be a slave to the Matrix, because we never run out of the Spirit of Life.

When it comes to the Matrix, we must learn to discern how to best put our treasure (hearts) to use to protect us from enslavement.

 THE POWER OF THE HEART

Our hearts govern our emotions, and emotions just happen to be the fastest and most powerful vibrations – much stronger than thoughts. In fact, the Institute of HeartMath has proven the heart to have its own “brain” – about 60 times more electrically powerfully than the brain, and 5000 times more magnetically powerful than the brain.

Now that’s POWER!

Scientist Rollin McCraty wrote: “The heart is a sensory organ and acts as a sophisticated information encoding and processing center that enables it to learn, remember, and make independent functional decisions,”The Energetic Heart: Bioelectromagnetic Communication Within and Between People.

The mind is meant to protect the heart, not exploit it or use it. And herein lies the problem: Since the “Age of Enlightenment” humanity has placed the brain as the “all powerful” function of human capacity, while the heart (and its immeasurable treasure within) as a mere afterthought – even an imposition to our evolution. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When it comes to emotions, we are still in the Dark Ages.

 HEALING THE HEART

A deep wounding has occurred at a very vulnerable level on the planet – it happened at the level of our hearts, our intuition, and our spirits. You could say it is the “feminine” side of humanity (or the feminine principle) and it is this energy that is coming to the surface to be healed.

Your mind alone won’t lead you out of the Matrix of Lack – it will only get you more tangled within its intricate web. Your heart carries the map. This is why it’s crucial to be present, attentive, and non-judgmental towards your vulnerabilities. Forgiveness (of self and others) is KEY to Universal expansion and growth. It is indeed, the key to immortality (aka Heaven on Earth), and therefore, the GATEWAY to stepping out of the control of the Matrix of Lack.

So how do we learn to trust our hearts?

First and foremost, we must remember that our hearts are GOOD. They may be shut down, broken, vulnerable, and misunderstood, but they are our power, and our freedom only comes from the RESTORATION and RELEASE of our hearts from the control of the mind. As the famous saying goes, “the mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.”

Today, spend some time with your heart. Take several deep breaths, close your hearts, place your hand on your heart, and allow it speak to you. Refrain from judging what comes up. What you feel (regardless of what it is – anger, sadness, despondency, etc.) is a MESSAGE for you. And the message is meant to show you where we are on your Life Map. Don’t shoot the messenger. Thank it. Listen to it. If we want to be free from the Matrix, we must allow our treasure to multiply, and our treasure is within the HEART. Don’t bypass it.

Here’s a little message I recorded in the mountains this morning as a reminder for our hearts:

Empaths vs. HSP (The Dynamics of Vibrational War)

Uncategorized

Today I received an essential comment on an article I wrote a couple year ago entitled, “Empaths vs. HSP (They’re Not the Same Thing)This article represents a time I was breaking free from much of the interpersonal warfare with some HSP in my family (and learning a TON about my empathic abilities in the process).

You can read the full comment at the end of the actual article,  but I wanted to post some of the highlights, as well as my response back to her.

This comment, I feel, voiced what many HSP feel and wish others would understand about them. While my response is what I assume many empaths feel and wish HSP would understand about us.

Thank you for sparking this article, Crystal! Also, I edited my entire response in the comment section, so I’m sorry if you received a million revisions! 😉

HSP and Empaths — I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Response from Crystal:

“I am truly HSP. The way you describe a HSP on Youtube was degrading and sounded selfish. HSP were born this way, so if you were truly an empath you’d see that and be more understanding of the pain we endure. 

Have you ever thought that it could be your own thinking that created the affliction inside of you because of your thinking of it? Yes, there are truth empaths that experience people’s pain from far. But HSP have already experienced so much pain in our lives that we don’t have to HAVE that person’s pain to understand what that person is going through..

HSP have an extremely, some unbearable nervous system, so with that comes pain and emotion go so deep that it’s far beyond words. I tend to believe that you are not as empathic as you claim to be because you would be more gentle with your output about HSP. A truly HSP is sensitive to the core, physically too. Their skin, hair, and organs are even fragile. It’s not just about experiences, emotions, etc. It’s a physical manifestation from birth that is unspeakable…

Comparing empaths and HSP is like comparing plants. Like a tender violet to a tree. They’re both plants but if you touch a violet it dies. HSP do pick up other people’s energies, the atmosphere, and surroundings very easily and it stays inside us. We tend to be absorbers, picking up others energies is debilitating for us because of our delicate nervous system…

It’s like the old (demeaning) saying “thin skinned people.”

HSP is almost like handling a burned patient. You should be able to sense that if you were a true empath. But it appears there’s no real empathy here for HSP because if there were, your definition would have been more empathetic. It would be muchly appreciated if there were more understanding about real HSP. Thank you.”\

Female energy4

My response:

Thank you for sharing these thoughts. I agree. I was expressing lower vibrational emotions in this article, which makes us immune to our more subtle sensitivities. I was in the expression of my experience, giving a voice to the unhealed side of my empathic self.

In fact, recently I did a video talking about the jaded place I was in when I wrote many of my articles at this time. I was experiencing emotional pain in relation to my own sensitivity with HSP in my family.

Unhealed HSP tend to use empaths (unconsciously) to feel and express those lower vibrational emotions they reject within themselves, then shame and emotionally manipulate empaths for feeling them. They do this because of a belief that only *certain* emotions or vibrations are acceptable to feel (obviously, this comes from trauma).

Although I was expressing my “war” with HSP in this article, I will always leave it up because it is an authentic reflection of where I was at the time, and the reality of an empath: we feel others – most especially the emotions they reject, suppress, and deny.

The conflict between HSP and Empaths lies here. Many HSP identify so strongly with being “good” that they develop an acute aversion to lower vibrational emotions, which can cause them to construct a superiority complex that demeans and belittles the very REAL human experience of feelings like anger or jealousy, or bitterness.

Because HSP are so sensitive to these lower vibrations, they often project their rejection of these vibrations onto the empath and then paint the empath as the “enemy” for expressing them (which justifies withholding love, or in their mind, their sensitivity to the empath).

This, in turn, triggers the empath’s deep wound of rejection, which can cause them to either try to “earn” the HSP’s love back, or attempt to appease the HSP by promising to change. Both of these options invalidates the emotional experience of the empath, and reinforces the belief that “I can’t feel what I feel because it will hurt someone.” In reality, what we are saying is “I can’t feel what others are uncomfortable feeling.”

A better option for empaths is to validate our emotional state, REFUSE to withhold love from ourselves (or the other) for feeling, allow the HSP to interpret the vibrations however they choose (without taking it personally), and let the emotion go.

The point is, we do not have to modify, minimize, or lie about how we feel. However, understanding the nature of an HSP can certainly help us remember the rejection of emotion is not about US – it is reflective of a deeper wound.

Your response helped me remember the second agreement (from book THE FOUR AGREEMENTS),

“Take nothing personally.”

If an empath allows the HSP’s fear of lower vibrations to be internalized within, we agree to the HSP’s story (lower vibrations = I’m unsafe). This is a profoundly damaging belief for an empath to have, as it causes deep internal conflict about the very essence of what we are. By nature, we cannot reject our emotional experience without making ourselves sick or blocking Life Force.

Although I know it was probably unintentional, your tone in this comment is reflective of this dynamic. Because I was expressing lower vibrational emotions in this article, you imply that I am somehow “unworthy” to call myself an empath and should be ashamed of my feelings.

Spiritual abuse

Your comment also implies one of the biggest misunderstandings humans have about emotions: that they are unchanging and stagnate. Just because I FELT this way over two years ago does not mean this is what I AM. A belief that we ARE our emotions suggests that we are also powerless to them.

Lower vibrational emotions do temporarily mute our sensitivity to higher vibrations (we cannot feel both appreciation and anger at the same time), but getting angry is how we, as empaths, free ourselves from being controlled by the emotional needs of others. Anger helps release us from the co-dependent agreements and interactions that have caused us to self-destruct. (And many times, those co-dependent relationships are with HSP).

Feeling emotions (ALL OF THEM) is not wrong. This article does express my Shadow, my limited perspective, and my projections, but it does not make me any less “empathic,” or my experience of HSP any less valid.

Empaths and HSP are extremely sensitive to each other because they both represent the contrast of emotional vibrations. Ultimately, we are perfect reflections of each other.

HSP may be “born” with sensitivity, but they are not born with the Matrix of lack and fear. Fear of lower vibrational emotions comes from trauma and is the root of why so many HSP feel unsafe in this world. In order to be free, HSP, just like everyone else in the lack matrix, need to reprogram their understanding about what it means to be highly sensitive so it becomes a superpower, not a handicap.

*Special note: These dynamics can exist between anyone (empath, hsp, or not) and vacillate constantly. We all play all roles, but we have patterns, beliefs, and habits that often keep us repeating the same story. We are not saying “this is the ONLY way it is!” but rather, “this is one way it is.”

 

 

Empaths Receive Your Inheritance!

Magic Mondays

I’ve been thinking a lot about the leverage points for our current shift. We are entering uncharted waters and many people are clinging like hell to the old matrix of lack, fear, and powerlessness.

Why?

We fear the unknown. Deep down we wonder if we are worthy of abundance. We fear the mistakes we’ve made and we haven’t fully validated, forgiven, and shifted our own pain. Our reptilian minds focus intently on survival, and we make fear our constant reality by supporting a mindset of lack as we affirm repeatedly (through our words and actions) that we don’t have enough.

But what if I told you there is a new matrix currently being built by the dreamers, the creators, and those who dare to imagine the world where we THRIVE? It’s much less populated than the matrix of lack and without malicious competition (because there is plenty for all, and those who come KNOW they are sovereign creators and believe it is their birthright to create worlds!).This kingdom is ours for the taking if we would but receive and hold the vibrational reality of its abundance. It’s given by grace and strengthened through faith.

People don’t talk much about faith anymore. We value the mind above hope and put our trust all too easily in the system that is based on a philosophy of lack. Faith requires us to believe that humans can choose love over fear. It asks us to step outside of the naysaying/doomsday prophecies and use our minds to create something new. It dares us to forgive everyone, everywhere, in all timelines and realities — especially ourselves.

Faith can and does move mountains (as they say). Where are you currently investing yours? What matrix are you putting your faith in?

My hope and prayer is that you’ll join me in your thoughts, expectations, and intention, to create a world of abundance.

It already exists. It’s here. You need only receive it.

Let’s do this!

With all the love and gratitude of my heart!

 

Amanda

Empaths Receive Your Inheritance!

Chakra Cleanse Bootcamp

Uncategorized

Join me for a special discounted mentoring Chakra Cleanse online class:

This cleanse is for those looking to:

  • Empower their empathic abilities
  • Transform the relationship with the body
  • Heal past relationships
  • Practice conscious manifestation with other empaths
  • Clear past programs and beliefs out of the chakras
  • Overcome strongholds and fears

This is a special offer is a significant discount with the archived class material for those wishing to lock in the lower price before the new cleanse is released!

We’ll focus on our relationship with:

*Our Bodies

*Our Emotions

*Our Thoughts

*And our Manifestations!

In this 8 week mentoring we will focus on uncovering deeply integrated messages stored inchakra-bubble our chakras and emotional field, establishing harmony and communication between the physical body and our emotional selves, and using our minds to help facilitate a clean, strong, powerful relationship with body.

For many empaths, the physical body is the most difficult to get in harmony with. This is primarily because of the tremendous amount of energy we pull in and process on a daily basis. For empaths, it’s important not to allow our emotional state to control us.

Regular energetic hygiene and cleansing is crucial (and this involves affirmations, mantras, breathing exercises, and knowledge about how empathic abilities work).

But we’ll also make it fun with co-manifestation exercises, “dares” for more self-love/self-care, and lots of practice honing our intuitive skills.

This class is perfect for:

  • Energy healers/body workers (learn a regular energetic hygiene practice that keeps your energy field clear, strong, and vibrant)
  • Actors/poets/channels (practice moving energy out and keeping inspiration fresh for creative projects)
  • Seasoned empaths who are ready to step into the next level of their empowerment (discover and remove any blocks keeping you from starting that healing practice, offering your services, writing that book or diving in to a creative project).

The class will be held in a private Facebook forum. The material is meant to go at your own pace (with a new chakra released each week). However, the group calls won’t begin until the week of June 1st (exact time/date to be confirmed in our class forum).

This mentoring group is for people who are serious about mastering their empathic abilities, empowering themselves, and not afraid to look at their shadow and dark side. It’s about taking 100% responsibility for our emotional health, our relationships, and our energetic boundaries.

Understanding the function of our chakras and their role in the life force and vitality of our emotional world, is a powerful way to assist with the disorientation and confusion that can occur during times of change and transformation. And this is a powerful time of change.

We best be ready. 🙂

Chakra Cleanse Class + 4 Group calls — $111

*Due to the time sensitive nature of this program, not refunds will be given once the cleanse begins.

Here’s what some from the past beta test group have said:

“Through your course, I have discovered parts of myself that I didn’t know were possible. I have more of a ‘hold’ on my emotional self and am at peace with things than ever before. When you said that we are going to be dying and creating ourselves again, I didn’t know that literally, an old self would die and I would become new. But …. here I am!

I am learning so much about myself, and how I view(ed) the world. Thank you for giving me the tools to discover myself. This is the greatest gift I could imagine.” Andrea N., Florida

“This has single-handedly been the most overwhelmingly aligned, useful, perfectly on-point message that I’ve ever received. I am wildly grateful and blown away, and just…. TOUCHED by… just… your knowledge and your heart and your ability to empath. I’m not kidding. This response resonated on levels that I haven’t had words for. I’m LITERALLY making a map with pictures and symbols of what you wrote so it can be imbued deeper within me because it’s truly my life education…it’s what I’ve been seeking. so fucking blessed. thank you, my heart is just completely overwhelmed with love. sending so much to you.” Chelsea R., Oregon

“I’m not going to lie — it’s been intense! But whoa! My eyes are open. I can’t believe how much I’ve learned about myself. I feel like I have a whole new set of tools for this next journey of my empowerment. THANK YOU!”  Maddie A., Oregon

Sedona Magic

The Heart Chakra

A spider doesn’t allow a careless swipe from a wayward wind, to keep it from continuing its masterpiece. A spider will always weave.

In many ways, Chakra Center feels like my first public web.

Despite its unpolished and unrefined appearance, it’s is my small platform to say, “Yes. We do exist. We’re not alone. And  although it may not be clear yet, we’re doing something epic on the planet. Wait and see!”

As we heal the wounds from our own lives, we hold a new space of love and understanding for humanity.  (I believe the Bible calls us, “intercessors”). But we must have our whole heart with us on the journey. We must be truthful about our needs, and we must love ourselves enough to discern between our deepest desires, and our casual wishes. Finally, we must allow our desires to matter. Because they do.

“Above all else, watch over your heart. For it is the well-spring of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)

Unfortunately, most negative programming is designed to make us doubt and condemn our true desires (which is counterproductive to the principle of creation, as it is desire that fuels life).

This photoshoot marks a shift in my willingness to be vulnerable with my desires and to trust the Universe is for my healing and restoration.

It’s all quite magical how it manifested, actually. Here’s a quick synopsis:

(Logged PRIVATE DETECTIVE style, for the sake of brevity):

Halloween 2016:

A dear friend of mine happens to be in Colorado while I am there visiting my brother. We decide to meet-up on Halloween day, at Tonic Oxygen Bar in Boulder.

Just before connecting, I find an ISIS oracle deck at a nearby shop. It practically jumps off the shelf for me.

I take out the deck while a woman wearing cat ears serves our drinks.

We pull a card.

MIRACLE of ISIS: Miraculous Healing of the Goddess.

Isis was known as a talented practitioner of the healing arts and was capable of miraculous Isis deck2healing. No matter how impossible it may seem to imagine your life without this old wound, addiction, problem, relationship issue, or inner struggle, you are guided now to accept the possibility of miraculous healing, to let go and let the Goddess be…

Healing means letting go of attachment to outcome and how that outcome might be achieved, and opening to the Divine genius of healing that seeks to express the perfection of Divine Love through you now.

To hand something over for healing, especially when it has been a long-term or persistent difficulty, or simply seems to be too great or overwhelming to be healed, takes a radical change of mind and heart! To dare to hope without becoming attached to how or when something can happen, to surrender without forgetting to follow your intuition and act accordingly, to trust even though you may have been disappointed or hurt in the past – all these things take skill and courage.

Yet these are the requirements for us to surrender into the great healing of Divine Love. Lady Isis speaks through this Oracle and says to you that recovery from trauma and emotional healing is not only possible, but if you are willing, it can happen for you now. No matter the depth of grief, loss, despair, fear or anger, Love can and will absorb all of it.

This Oracle is also an indication that a spiritual gift of awakening of deep healing ability at a new level, are coming your way. Keep your eyes and heart open and let go of doubt or fear about opening up to a new level of proficiency. Dedicate your work to Divine Love and trust that it will flow through you stronger now. You are capable of great work when you trust in your heart and the love of the Divine flowing through you with total surrender.”

(Side note: Doesn’t the depiction of Isis in the card look like (@dakotajohnson  ) ?!

Everything about this card resonates. In fact, here’s a quick backstory:

The first time I  met Kelly was at a coffee shop in Sedona. I was on my way to the Conscious Life Expo in LA with Charis Melina Brown (featured in photos) and a couple Alchemists. We got in line behind a girl with long blonde hair who turned and smiled warmly in a gesture of recognition. Turns out she had seen my YouTube videos, and knew Charis.

“You’ve helped me remember I’m not alone.” She said as Charis officially introduced us. “Not many out there navigating these waters with clarity.”

Log of events:

A couple months later Kelly arrives at a retreat I am hosting with Charis in Sedona. She places a tiny rhodonite crystal in my left hand. I feel an electric pulse go up my arm and into my heart. My eyes instantly swell with tears, which she mirrored to me in her expression.

“I know.” She smiled. “I had a feeling you needed it. It’s a deep one.”

Empathic connection.

Colorado Plants the Seed:

Now we are here, in Colorado, another unplanned encounter.

I wonder many times during our conversation if we are dead, or if I am crazy. It feels like a vivid dream and all of our connections and resonance feels attached to another time and place.

A bee stings me a few days later when she visits at my brother’s house. She gives me lavender essential oil to soothe the burn.

“Bee medicine.” I say as I dabble the oil on the sting and hold back tears. “They told me they were going to do it.” Which is true. Just a day earlier, one particularly curious bee had flown around me obsessively with what felt like urgent news. When I asked what he wanted, I simply felt a statement: “Standard procedure. Expect a sting soon.”

I am not sure why the ordeal makes me emotional, but a deep feeling of grief rises and is soothed, simultaneously as Kelly hands me another crystal. This time rose quartz.

 “I have boxes of rose quartz waiting to be showcased.” She told me, before driving off.

Seed plants successfully.

March 2017:

It’s 5 months later.

I receive a vision of rose quartz photographed around the wisdom of red rock (Sedona’s calls always feel vivid and aromatic).

I know the photographer I want. I know the perfect designer. I know the ideal model. I know Kelly has rose quartz that wants to be photographed. I’m not sure how the trip will manifest, but it does. Everyone can make the dates, the house we want is available for rent, the money to pay for the shoot arrives. The Universe gives us a green light.

Everyone weaving the creation on the shoot is an empath. Trusting others with our gifts is where we’ve been wounded. Our shared vulnerability and sensitivity creates early, respectful bonds.

The magic begins to unfold.

If Chakra Center marks the beginning of my death, this photoshoot represents the genesis of my rebirth.

The butterfly comes out of the cocoon.

You know how Oprah always asks, “What do you know for sure?”?

Sedona reminded me of one thing I do know for sure: our hearts always seek restoration.

Many thanks to the rose quartz for calling us together for a proper initiation. How fitting to begin here, with the heart of creation, at the base of Cathedral Rock, celebrating new and renewed life. I love the Goddess in her many changing forms.

This table is mostly empty, but I invite you to the evolving feast.

This is only the beginning.

 

*Stay tuned for my upcoming interview with Charis Melina Brown. We will be talking all things magic, shadow integration, witches duels, and what it feels like to transcend the “Victim/Villain/Savior” paradigm.

Can’t wait to see you there.

Empaths: The New Entrepreneur

Uncategorized
Common strongholds for empaths are:
*Low self-esteem
*Weight issues (feeling disconnected from the body)
*Co-dependent relationships
*Work issues (not thriving in 9-5 jobs)

When it comes to any habit, continual redirection of focus and patterns is KEY to make lasting shifts. Having someone walk with you through the process can be a POWERFUL tool to overcome even the most well-practiced behaviors and mindsets.

Here’s what’s cooking:

Empath Love Balm (for the Heart Chakra)

Uncategorized

Valentine’s day doesn’t have to be exclusively about romantic love. We can use this day as a way to celebrate love in every form (and believe me, the world could use a more intentional focus on love these days!).4-1

I have an extra reason to celebrate love this week, as we are on the heart chakra in the Chakra Cleanse mentoring group. Needless to say, I’ve been focusing a lot on my heart and remembering how powerful the energy of LOVE really is. Love restores. Love heals all wounds. Love can break any curse.

With this particular power in mind, I wanted to prepare an intentional space to create Valentine Day wishes with some of my closest friends.

Here’s the most recent recipe I’ve cooked up (with Ashley’s Dream Decor).

1

Valentine’s Card Making Party (Love Balm for the Heart Chakra)

Objective: A fun excuse to get together with friends and create Valentine Wishes for everyone you love! (What do you wish for your loved ones? Or maybe for strangers? Imbue that wish like a charm into your Valentine creation).

What was used:

*Guava Goddess and Cosmic Cranberry Kombucha (in tea cups…because it is tea, after all): to enliven the senses, detox the body, and refresh the mind

*Free2b Cherry, Sunflower seeds and sea salt chocolate: to unlock hidden desires and reveal destiny

6-1

*Romance novels: to attract the energy of passion and fun (no, I’ve never read them). 😉

10

*Hanging silver hearts and pink carnations: to emphasis the heart and enhance happiness

4-1

*12 pink roses (for luck in love)

1

*Variety of pink card stock  and white envelopes (for Valentine’s cards)

14

*Heart cut-outs

*Comforting Geranium Mineral Bath party favor : Balances hormones 9

*Lots of love (and intention for more love on the planet)

235-1711131420-115

4-1

With our words we can bless or curse. With creations we can restore and heal. Everything we do, in fact, expresses something to the world (energetically). It’s powerful to slow down and focus our true intentions into what we create.

Can you feel the magic? If so, receive it! Because these are my wishes for you!

Your turn!

How To Create A Wishing Spot

Uncategorized

I wanted a powerfully charged spot to contemplate, focus, journal, and most importantly, have fun with my creativity. Because I am a visual person, it helps to have a focal point for my chakra cleanse, which includes my intentions, the overall energy of the class itself, as well as my personal wishes and ideas.

Merely a technology for using symbols, colors, and powerful associations (that have personally meaning), to help shift you into a more heart-centered, inspired space, a wishing spot (or Master Vision Piece), is a way to also allow your heart and your mind to connect consciously.

Emotions fuel manifestations stronger and quicker than thoughts, so having a Master Vision Piece that has personal meaning for you, is powerful fuel for manifestation.

Because I’m a big fan of design magic, I called in the vision and style of Ashley’s Golden Dream Decor. Ashley’s all about capturing wishes and making them reality, and what she created for me is the PERFECT wishing spot (altar).

Take a look!

 

Week 1: Root Chakra

I included all elements that resonate with the root charka, including my theme for week 1 of the Chakra Cleanse, which is PEACE.

peace3

Hanging candles and colored bottles represent all of the Chakra colors. This adds dimension and depth to the creative space, and surrounds me with the therapeutic enegy of the chakras.

peace1

We included essential oils known for balancing the ROOT chakra (Frankincense and the “Grounding” blend from Young Living).

peace7peace32

My alchemist friend, Joshua Pellicer, has gifted me with many delicious medicinal oils, which of course made the cut. Oil of iron, oil of gold, Oil of Sedona Red Rock and frankincense, and oil of vanilla. These oils fuel my space with a powerful energy of ALCHEMY.

peace16peace1

Using Colette Baron-Reid’s “Enchanted Map” oracle cards. Because why  not?! They’re magical!

peace12

Powerful crystal energy fuels the spot. And some “Jesus Juice” (frankincense and myrrh essential oil blend).

peace26

To add to the potency of subtle elemental magic, we filled these hanging candle holders with dried hibiscus flowers (attracts love), frankincense tears (clears negative energy), and whole dried cloves (attracts money and safety).

peace24peace25peace13peace10

Nature’s natural setting gave the whole space a proper “witchy” feel. I loved how this masterpiece turned out.

peace18

These candles have whole star anise (stimulates psychic activity), blue poppy seeds (fertility, love, and abundance), and dry lavender (calms stress, promotes relaxation, and supports dreamtime).

How to Manifest Your Dream Job Without Feeling Drained

Uncategorized

Recently I did a live post in my Empowering Empaths Facebook Group on how to manifest your ideal job without feeling drained or controlled. Because of all the interest in this topic, I wanted to share it here. But first let me give you a little background:

For the past 6 years I have survived outside of the matrix. I don’t have any prior business experience, never took a marketing class, and frankly knew nothing about how to make money.

As an empath, I always struggled in the 9-5 environment. Work felt more like a battle than job, and often I left in tears wondering how other people were able to cope so easily with the intensity of the work environment. How were people so easily able to shut down their hearts and simply “grind it out?.” Many times I wondered if something was seriously wrong with me.

Eventually I WOKE UP and got FED UP with being controlled and drained by the world around me. I knew there had to be a way to thrive simply by being me — rather than trying to fit in a box someone else designed.

Most empaths are simply not an ideal match for 9 – 5 environments. Yet, we have these amazing skills and abilities that the world needs (and that people WILL pay you for), we’ve just been underused and under valued (primarily by ourselves).

Throughout the years, I have talked to countless empaths with the same dilemma: How to find a work environment where they can thrive, rather than feeling drained, manipulated, and controlled. My guess is that if you’re in this group, you’re probably wondering the same thing.

Well wonder no further!

IT IS ABSOLUTELY POSSIBLE not only for you to thrive in your job, but to be abundant JUST FOR BEING YOU. In fact, being YOU is the greatest asset you have. You’re a master at it, and the world needs what you came here to BE.

So let’s get you on the path of freedom with 5 MINDSET SHIFTS that will help redirect your energy from the black hole of the matrix (which cannot bring you the life you desire), and put you on the track of more abundance than you ever dreamed possible!

Here you go!

 

How to Break Emotional Strongholds

Uncategorized

Here’s the deal:

I receive emails everyday with people asking how to get UNSTUCK.

“How do I get out of this codependent relationship?”
“How do I step into my power?”
“How can I attract more abundance?”
“How can I find love?”
“How can I strengthen my psychic/empathic awareness?”

The bottom line is, we’re stuck because of one thing: a belief or a definition that is out of alignment with our true selves.

To truly be free of a stronghold or block, we must go to the ROOT of whatever caused it. We must allow healing and love to restore the disconnection from our navigation system.

There is no reason for you not to thrive. But you must TUNE IN to your guidance system. THIS IS CRUCIAL.

Why don’t we tune-in?

Simple. We’re afraid of emotions.

We don’t want to feel anything uncomfortable. We don’t want to bring up past pain. We don’t want to look at the fullness of what we are (which includes the dark, painful, unconsciously things too) because that would mean we’re not just victims, or saviors, or villains — we’re all of those things.

We must learn to harmonize with our nature, or we will forever be at war with ourselves.

emotional-healing

Health is wealth, and science is finally catching up to the fact that our emotions HEAVILY influence our health, our thoughts, and even our actions. When we have unhealed emotional wounds, they control us. End of story.

It would appear, in fact, that this unseen emotional reality has more influence over the “seen” reality than we’d like to admit. The truth is, emotions are the fuel for creation and it is essential to include them in our game plan for survival — because they matter!

Ignoring or suppressing emotions cause blocks and strongholds that keep us apart from true resonance with our guidance system. As long as we’re blocked, it is difficult to find our true north, and life can feel fuzzy and meaningless.

So how do we get free?

We must find the root of the block. We must become aware of those subconscious agreements and beliefs that cause us to self-sabotage, or remain stuck.

The chakra cleanse is a tool to help release those agreements with our creation and make new ones that take into consideration our emotional, physical, and , mental health.

We are either on the path of more trauma, or the journey of restoration, empowerment, and healing.

Let’s choose consciously.

Here’s how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8G7bNxp1aX8

For those who have requested a one-on-one mentoring package for the Chakra Cleanse.

I’ve got this for you:

An opportunity to go through the 8 week cleanse with me as your one-on-one guide. Personal mentoring includes all the class material + content, two 1 hour phone sessions with me per week, chakra meditations, email coaching, and lots of feedback and reflection.

Here’s what we’re going to do:

— Get in touch with the tantric cycles playing out in your chakras and find the loop hole for healing and restoration

— Get you back in resonance with your authentic desires, so life feels more natural and exciting to you again

–Release any unconscious consent you may have given for hurt or self-sabotage

–Define your intentions and put you on the path of your highest excitement

–Strengthen your resolve for peace (otherwise known as kicking people out of your life who are draining your energy field).

I will only work with 5 people per cleanse for this personalized package, and I’m more selective about who I work with at this level. Private message me here on Facebook or through my website (www.chakracenter.org) if you are interested and we’ll see if we’re a good match.

I hope that answers your questions regarding how to learn with me. If none of the options above appeal to you, there’s lots of free resources on my website as well as many other teachers online who are excellent in giving guidance through this process of empowerment.

My goal is for you to find what YOU need, and I am definitely not for everyone. So regardless of which tools you use or how you find your way, I invite you to step into your abilities and consciously choose RESTORATION. You will forever thank yourself for years to come. ❤

I wish you luck and hope you find exactly what you need to take that next step in your life.

Much love!

Receive Your Nobility (Open the Crown)

Uncategorized

*Below is an excerpt from the empath chakra cleanse mentoring group:

As we move into the Crown Chakra, we open up to what many call the “higher astral realms” or the “angelic realms.” This is symbolic (and very real) energy.

I felt it necessary to pull in these energies to assist us in clearing outdated chakra-bubbleand unconscious beliefs we’ve uncovered. Here we learn to prepare our emotional body to deal with “darker” energies or “demons” (traumatized thought forms in our subconscious minds). Much of what is actually going on is shrouded in superstition, but it’s more simple than most of us realize. Don’t worry. We’ve totally got this.

When doing any type of energy work, many empaths use “shielding and protecting,” but I prefer to call it “preparing” and “connecting.”  It’s all about perspective. Words like “protect” and “shield,” create a reality in which there must be something to be protected from. This implies an enemy. And if we believe in an enemy, the mind will create one.

As we begin to master our emotions, however, (and therefore step into our role as conscious creators), we understand that how we feel about our creation is how we will experience it. From this point of view, connection and trust with our reality becomes vital, even essential. If we are to truly enjoy and thrive in this life, we must learn to make peace with (and understand) the role of contrast. It doesn’t have to be our enemy.

Rather than assume something dangerous is out to get us, we can think of this reality like an epic journey into undiscovered territory.

If my wild spirit calls me to ski, then I’ll go prepared: warm clothes, ski equipment, maybe some ski lessons, etc. We prepare because we want our experience to be as positive as it can be, not because we believe something is intentionally set out to harm us.

The same is true of interacting with the non-physical reality (or our subconscious mind). YodaAs we face our trauma (or the trauma of the world), we prepare by setting the proper energetic vibrations. It is absolutely possible to hold the vibrational essence of our true selves inside the darkness (in fact, our inner light becomes most apparent here).It’s possible to access joy while knowing the opposite also exists. This is where we loose the fear of our humanity and become one with contrast.

To prepare and connect to our ‘prayer body’ (or intentional self) gives empaths boundaries to work within that allow space for our unique needs and sensitivities. Don’t forget, we can ask our reality to assist with anything we create. And this week, we will.

I did the meditation for the crown chakra this morning and felt cleared, soothed, and refreshed. My prayer is that it renews your spirit and restores your faith in this life.

Much more is to come.

Stay present. Stay awake. Stay open.

Thank you for your willingness to REMEMBER.

Chakra Cleanse for Empaths

Uncategorized

Join me for a special, group mentoring Chakra Cleanse online class starting November 1st.

This is my second round of beta testing for empaths, and a much more streamlined message and interaction.

In this 8 week mentoring we will focus on uncovering deeply integrated messages stored inchakra-bubble our chakras and emotional field, establishing harmony and communication between the physical body and our emotional selves, and using our minds to help facilitate a clean, strong, powerful relationship with body.

For many empaths, the physical body is the most difficult to get in harmony with. This is primarily because of the tremendous amount of energy we pull in and process on a daily basis. For empaths, it’s important not to allow our emotional state to control us.

Regular energetic hygiene and cleansing is crucial (and this involves affirmations, mantas, breathing exercises, and knowledge about how empathic abilities work).

The class will be held on a private Facebook forum. The mentoring will include weekly personal email check-ins/sessions with me, weekly group Google hangouts, as well as all class information and material.

This mentoring group is for people who are serious about mastering their empathic abilities, empowering themselves, and not afraid to look at their shadow and dark side. It’s about taking 100% responsibility for our emotional health, our relationships, and our energetic boundaries.

Thanks to the lessons I learned from my first beta test mentoring group, I believe this class will be a powerful, structured, and streamlined way for you to connect to your intuitive abilities and strengthen your emotional field.

You don’t have to know about chakras to take the class. Information will be provided, and hopefully by the end, you’ll have a powerful grasp and understanding on your personal emotional and energetic flow.

Understanding the function of our chakras and their role in the life force and vitality of our emotional world, is a powerful way to assist with the disorientation and confusion that can occur during times of change and transformation. And this is a powerful time of change.

We best be ready. 🙂

The Birth of the Empath

Empaths, Uncategorized

Since I started mentoring empaths I’ve had to piece together my theories about our ability to feel and transmute emotional energy, as well as create a framework for why I believe opening up our hearts, allowing ourselves to become MORE sensitive, and approaching our empathic lives from a place of empowerment, rather than “protection” is the more logical (and holistic) way to live.

Here’s my take:

If we take a broader view of the human story as it continues to unfold, we can begin to see how the empath in us was born.

What is Empathy?

Empathy is synonymous with the heart, because it represents our ability to FEEL this Heart Mindhuman experience of contrast (and gain a concept of “the other”). It can also be seen as the feminine quality of human consciousness, or the experiencing of “bearing and receiving.”

Empathy can be understood as the expression and experience BETWEEN contrast. As we know, the complexity and function of emotion is not black and white. That’s why we need the heart.  Our hearts have the ability to DISCERN what our emotions tell us; the mind simply judges.

The complexity of emotions:

Let’s say a young girl is caught between the fighting of her parents. She hears her father insult her mother, her mother insult her father, and because she is the most vulnerable “feeler” in the room, she is receiving all this energy PERSONALLY, as if it is direct toward her and is about her. She sees her parents as an extension of herself, and therefore the drama that unfolds is experienced in her reality as a message about her.

The parents may not see the reality of their child, because in their mind they know they child-parents-fightingare talking to each other, about each other. If the situation is approached from the mind alone, it’s quite simple: the argument was not about the little girl and therefore the parents don’t feel obligated to acknowledge her reality of the situation.

Therefore, the young girl’s experience is invalidated and unexplained. Her intimate world of “feeling” is not the reality of the people around her, and therefore goes unnoticed. And when our internal reality finds no meaning, catharsis, or connection in the external world, we feel isolated and separate from others – we quite literally live in our own experience and the meaning we give that experience determines the lesson we will take away, and how we will be shaped by it.

The meaning the little girl gives the fight will most likely be quite different than the meaning the parents have. But her reality is JUST as real. This unexplained and confusing experience has now begun a “tantric” cycle with this young girl, as her heart will continue to attract similar situations into her experience until she makes sense of what happened and corrects any beliefs she may have taken on about herself that are not in alignment with her inner truth.

The little girl’s heart must heal from this experience, and it does this by “feeling” its way back into alignment with its true resonance. “Logic” at this point is irrelevant, because she is making the most logical conclusion she has available to her, based on her level of understanding of the world.

The Heart’s Electromagnetic field

Here are some important things to understand about the heart:

* The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body. The electrical field is Electromagnetic field of heartabout 60 times greater in amplitude than our brain waves and approximately 5,000 times greater magnetically.

*HeartMath studies show this powerful electromagnetic field can be detected and measured several feet away from a person’s body and between two individuals in close proximity.

* The heart’s electromagnetic field contains certain information or coding, which researchers are trying to understand, that is transmitted throughout and outside of the body. One of the most significant findings of HMI’s research related to this field is that intentionally generated positive emotions can change this information/coding. (http://wearechange.org/heartmath-part-1/)

If you look at the toroidal field around the heart (shown in picture above), we can see the heart is literally the center of our electromagnetic field (auric field) and because it’s electromagnetic energy is affected by EMOTION, it’s no wonder many empaths can feel their entire body responding to overwhelming emotions or chaotic energy. Controversy, positive energy can affect our entire experience of our reality in a positive way.

A whole, open, trusting heart is the most powerful energy on earth. It’s capable of sustaining our life force and our energy. Yet, we live in a world of contrast, and this contrast often breaks our hearts. And when our hearts are broken, we are cut off from the most powerful navigation system we have because we learn to distrust the experience of FEELING.

When we distrust feeling, we turn to the mind. And as the saying goes:

The mind is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.”

The problem with allowing the mind to lead, is it does not have the ability to discern heart-and-mind(understand through the wisdom of experience). Discernment is the heart’s job. The mind views the world in black and white: right and wrong, yes and no – it is a way of navigating through judgement, rather than discernment.

And the problem with allowing the mind to be the sole navigator, is we go to war with ourselves. Because the mind alone does not have the discernment to FEEL when it is destroying itself.

Set on a crusade for RIGHT, our mind takes on the task of destroying anything that doesn’t fit into its “idea” of perfection. Yet, it can only determine what is right and wrong based on programs it receives externally from itself (TV, parents, society, etc.).

Although the mind thinks its protecting the ego, it is actually self-sabotaging its human experience, because the mind (without a connection to the heart) does not have the ability to see itself in “the other” and does not have the ability to discern the complexity and nuance of emotion. Therefore, it’s incapable of truly knowing what a person needs.

The Shadow Side of the Empath

The Sociopath (or psychic Vampire) is the Shadow side of an empath. It’s what we become when our minds work independently from the heart — when we go to war with our hearts and attempt to live from a place of logic, rather than logic AND feeling. And the dark side of the empath is the most dangerous villain we will ever confront (all the more reason to integrate our shadow, eh?!).

Side note: I think the reason many empaths are often drawn to sociopaths is because we are trying to understand the part of us that is so unfeeling/unsympathetic TOWARD OURSELVES – the part of our mind’s creation that sabotages us.

In order for us to transcend the cycle of self-sabotage, we must reconnect to our heart’s navigation, and because we’ve been at war with ourselves, we must relearn the language and story of our hearts.

But how do we do this?

The Hearts tells the Unfolding Story of Human Consciousness

Thankfully, our hearts have been telling a crucial and revealing story for over 2000 years. the-shadowAnd the dynamics of its story contain three primary roles: the Aggressor, the Victim, and the Savior.

The Aggressor/Victim/Savior paradigm is where the heart’s emotions are created, processed, and released. It’s a reality where our heart plays out the details of its story, as many times as it needs, in order to understand itself and become whole again.

Our human consciousness has evolved through the dynamics of this unfolding drama.

In order for a broken heart to find its way back to itself, we live out STORIES or experiences that remind us of who we really are.

It’s important to note that in order for this paradigm to function, the victim is needed.

The “victim” role is crucial for the Aggressor or Savior. The Aggressor and Savior use the Victim to show (to varying degrees) what our “God self” (or higher perspective) does and does not resonate with in regards to relating to our humanity.  In a sense, the person playing the victim role allows our consciousness to see what we are, and what we aren’t.

Empathy is CRUCIAL in a “Aggressor/Victim/Savior” paradigm, because the only way OUT of this drama, is by recognizing our participation in ALL roles.

This is why it is easy for an empath to feel the aggressor’s pain, even when they may be the one at the brunt of the wrath. Or why it’s natural to identify with the savior, because we know the experience of feeling helpless or powerless is very real.

All of us have, at one time in our lives, played each role.

If we didn’t have the ability to recognize ourselves in each role, we would be caught in a never-ending battle against ourselves, because an aspect of us exists in ALL roles. Through living out these stories, we are telling the story of our human evolution, we are living the experience of the release and restoration of our hearts.

And the key to transcending this paradigm is EMPATHY.

If we never recognize that the one we are at war with is OURSELVES, we’ll never learn to harmonize with our shadow side and reconnect to our power (the heart). When we are disconnected from the heart, our power is untamed and uncontrolled. As we’ve seen, the heart is the most powerful magnetic field in the body – this means we quite literally PULL events and situations to us. When our hearts shut down, we attract situations to us unconsciously,  and life can feel confusing and chaotic.

I’ll post more about the heart’s journey back to itself next week.
